Think Meal 1, Meal 2, Meal 3 NOT Breakfast, Lunch…

Just because it’s called breakfast doesn’t mean you have to eat things other people eat for breakfast! In our culture, breakfast usually means a processed carb-fest. However, you will have to buck the popular culture somewhat when it comes to breakfast. Remember, if you want a different result than the norm, you will have to do things differently than everyone else! There are two ways you can go about this– The simple one is to get used to eating foods not traditionally thought of as breakfast in the morning. This can really save time if you happen to have leftovers. The second option is to cook your protein and vegetables in a breakfast style. Here's how you do it... 1) Start by selecting a protein source. Leftover meats work really well for breakfasts. 2) Then select some vegetables. 3) Add your fat as needed. Add more cooking oil (usually olive oil or coconut oil) if my daily fat needs are higher. 4) Finally, the spices. This will really make the difference in your meal. With different spices, this very same base recipe can be quite different. There are several spice combinations that you can try: add soy sauce (wheat-free tamari) and sesame oil for an Asian flavor. Add tomato sauce, basil, and oregano for an Italian dish. Cumin, chili powder, and oregano for a Latin meal. Curry powder and ginger for an Indian flavor. Countless spice and herb combinations are possible, expand your horizons and try new combinations. Another tip is to bulk cook, making a large enough batch so that you have leftovers for the coming mornings. This can really save time in the long run.
